Amazingly busy for a Wednesday evening in October. It was packed but the manager happily found us a table for 2 knowing he had a later booking on the table. All with no fuss at all.
Great menu, great service, great prices and fantastic quality food.
Recommended.

The food is a notch above most Indian restaurants. The service is good and prices reasonable for the quality of the food. In my experience this is the best Indian in Canterbury.

We are regulars here and have always rated the food, service and general ambience. The latter two are still excellent but on our most recent visits the food seemed a little...bland? No depth of flavour at all! Dissapointing as we love this place. Still ok but no longer excellent.

Got 2 free parking places in Canterbury!

Upstairs lounge area to wait for a table, but we were shown to our table when we arrived

Lovely ambiance, Victoria and Abdul / Colonial type decoration. Jazz keyboard player, live music made a difference to the usual taped music.

Food cooked to order. Each of us rated the food highly. Chicken tikka jalfrezi was delicious.

Pleasant staff.

Two of the party always give the 'toilet' review: not as clean as they could be. Toilet seat was the wrong size for the bowl. Would've taken the score down 1/2 a mark, but can't give 1/2 marks.

We would all recommend, nice romantic setting.

All would recommend.

The toilet review
